E&J Net Dissertation Fellowship
The SoHE Equity and Justice Network initiative, launched summer 2020, supports the continued evolution of our school into a community wherein people with diverse backgrounds find success, share knowledge, and advance justice. The E&J Net Dissertation Fellowship is available to SoHE students needing a final boost of dedicated time and/or financial support to complete their dissertation. Fellowships can be requested for one or two academic semesters, 12 weeks during the summer, or a combination of academic semester and summer, and will include dissertator tuition and health insurance benefits. Stipends are commensurate with fellowship rates set by the UW-Madison Graduate School.
Applicants are encouraged to apply for SoHE research funds (e.g., STAR Award or Bridget Coffing Research Award) to cover research costs, if needed.
NOTE: Given that the intention of this award is to provide a final boost toward degree completion, accepting the fellowship indicates that the student will no longer receive any priority for SoHE funding.
